I don’t know about the rest of you, but I often have a quick question that someone here can almost certainly answer in full with a single reply, or for other reasons just doesn’t seem worthy of creating a full thread of its own and it doesn’t fit into anything else. “What’s Happening today” sort of does this but lots of things don’t really fit that… I also feel bad if I have more than one or two active threads on the main page, especially if they are somewhat trivial questions or based on a topic not of interest to most growers. So, thought I’d try this thread: A place where you can just randomly ask whatever question you have at any time. If it works great, if not it will disappear and no harm done. I’ll start with the 2 questions I had in mine when I created this thread:
Do Plum Curculio and Oriental Fruit Moths only feed at night? I’ve almost never seen one but those crescent shaped scars have already been show.
Once the pest has deposited its egg, it there anything that can be done to prevent it from becoming a larvae and burrowing and causing problems. My guy says no since spray is outside fruit and skin and egg is deposited inside and the little flap of the fruit skin is laid back down over the deposit hole. But I have read that my bug spray-Imidan 70 WP - may be one of the few that can be retroactive (slightly). Just wondering if there is any truth to that.
